NBA Lockout: New Jersey Nets Lose Six Games

The New Jersey Nets already limited time in the Garden State was cut even shorter after NBA commissioner David Stern announced the league would be cancelling the first two weeks of the regular season.

This first batch of cancellations will cost the Nets six games, including matchups against the two teams that met in the NBA Finals: Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat.

Here is the complete list of the games on the New Jersey Nets schedule that have been cancelled.

Nov 2: @ Washington Wizards

Nov. 5: vs. Detroit Pistons

Nov. 7: vs. Milwaukee Bucks

Nov. 9: vs. Dallas Mavericks

Nov. 11: @ Miami Heat

Nov. 13: vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Much like the cancellation of the first two weeks of the preseason was just a preliminary step, odds are that wiping out this batch of games isn't the last we've seen from the league.

With real games being lost, the owners are going to try and recoup their losses, something that the players of course will object to at first.  It won't be until the players association realizes their deal is only going to get worse the longer that the lockout goes on that we will see real progress towards a new CBA.

Get ready for the list of missed games to grow quickly.
